PUBLISHED: 06:00 30 January 2015
Regional DAF truck dealership Chassis Cab has delivered 25 new vehicles to Felixstowe-based container haulage specialist Seven Lincs.
The £2.3million order continues a long-term relationship between the businesses, under which Chassis Cab has supplied around 100 new DAF LF trucks over the past year.
The latest order involves the DAF XF model, featuring the Euro 6 engine which offers new standards in terms of fuel efficiency and low emissions.
Seven Lincs, whose container transport fleet includes more than 100 44-tonne vehicles and 120 slider trailers, is part of the Ipswich-based Seven Asset Management group.
Tim Forman, managing director of Seven Asset Management, said: “These DAF trucks are partly for renewal and partly to cope with the expansion of business as we are finding that business has been particularly buoyant in recent months and we are seeing no signs of that changing into the future.
“The Euro 6 engine is at the forefront of new truck technology, for fuel efficiency and low emissions,” he added. “It runs super-clean and so we are confident that we are buying the right trucks to minimise the environmental impact of our business.”
Robert Baxter, dealer principal at Chassis Cab, which is based at Great Blakenham, near Ipswich, said: “The Seven group is a premium transport business with a UK-wide reputation for delivering quality.
“The business helps the supply chain sector with the movement of goods and regularly purchases new trucks so customers can access the latest transport technology without directly having the capital outlay.
“These new generation trucks will more than exceed the expectations of these customers who are looking for greener, cleaner trucks backed by guaranteed service levels, whatever the scale or scope of the job.”
Chassis Cab also has sites in Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Isleham, near Ely, and employs around 160 people across its four locations.
